First of all Islamically your husband is not a Muslim. All scholars agree that if a believer does not pray at the required times then he has left the fold of Islam.

Secondly, you are both living a life that is 'normal' in a Western society. People believe that if they are just good people and acknowledge that there is a God then that is fine. It is not fine as God has stipulated certain rules and regulations that a true believer must follow. These rules and regulations were abandoned by the Children of Israel and then the followers of Jesus (Alahi Salaam) went astray when they equated Jesus (Alayhi Salaam) as God incarnate and the son of god.

The way o believe in God is practiced by millions of people around the world thinking that it is perfectly acceptable, but it is not.

Prophet Muhammad (SalAllahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) was sent as the final messenger to mankind and we must follow what was revealed to him, follow these rules and regulations which will make one gets closer to God. This is the truest way that the believers practiced since the beginning of time.

If I may say without offending you that your beliefs are without guidance and in error. This is the reason millions of people choose to live their life their own way rather the way that was stipulated by God.

Jazakallah, may Allah guide those who seek it, who believe to stand in front of their maker one day. If we remember Him now, He will remember us and shower His Mercy on us, if we ignore Him and His duties, He will ignore us that day and that will be a great loss forever.

Hi happy2012, i am very glad to have found your post. Your story is the first that i have heard that is so similar to mine. My boyfriend is muslim too, and i am a free thinker. My boyfriend said before that i do not have to convert if i dont want to, and I also do not want to and do not need to have a religion. Same as you, i am happy the way i lead my life now. However, i am a chinese, and as in most chinese families, filial piety is very important. My parents are absolutely against me dating a muslim as they feel that i am condemning myself to a life led by islam as they believe that if i continue i "MUST" convert. They brought me up to be free spirited and want me to live without having to comply to any restrictions set by religions, and i feel the same way too. However, when i mentioned that i was dating a muslim, they were very heartbroken and as a result i was too. He is the only boyfriend i ever had and my parents keep telling me to 'be smart' and not to choose based on love alone. They keep saying that i am still young and there are many other choices out there. At first i insisted on my own interests and went against their wishes, but that only strained my relationship with my parents as we would often end up in quarrels. I cannot bear to disappoint them and cause them anymore heartbreak. Therefore i have decided to end it with my boyfriend even though i really dont want to as i love him very much and want to spend the rest of my life with him. My parents are glad to hear that we are no longer dating, but i just cannot stop doubting my decision. I keep wondering if i have done the right thing and am trying to find a better solutioncwhere i can be with the one i love, and also still live in harmony with my family. I am confident i will never be able to embrace a religion, so i will not convert. Same as you, i also respect my boyfriend's religion and do not expect him to defy his believes for me at all. And also if i start a family with him, i want my children to be able to choose their religion, and not be 'by default' muslims. They may most certainly be educated about islam, and if they choose to be muslim i will be happy for them. But i want them to have a choice and not to have their beliefs decided for them by some law. I really need some advise from someone in the same situation, so i really want to hear what you have to say. I really dont know what i should think or do. Whether it was the right decision to end the relationship. I really really want to be with him...

Please reply or pm me. I greatly appreciate it.

Sincerely,
Caughtinbetween
